Wirksworth flower shop

Wirksworth is the nearest town to the farm. It's a lovely little old market town with a variety of shops, a few restaurants and plenty of pubs.

It's about ten minutes drive down the hill, or you can walk down in about 30 minutes.

Market day is on Tuesday, and there's a local Farmer's Market on the first Saturday of every month.
